The Bible has a lot to say about plants and animals! Whether it is a parable about the kingdom of heaven or a reference to us being like sheep in need of a shepherd, the Bible is chock full of seeds and creatures. I am sure you know about the divine wisdom that God gave Solomon. What was his wisdom about?
We are told in 1 Kings 4:33 "Also he spoke of trees, from the cedar tree of Lebanon even to the hyssop that springs out of the wall; he spoke also of animals, of birds, of creeping things, and of fish."
Isn't that amazing! God has lessons to teach us from His creation and Solomon, the wisest man of his time, talked about creation with divine insight.
Listen to this podcast to hear a conversation about God's love for land, animals and the people He has called to steward them.

When thinking about the rewards of God, we tend to think of the eternal rewards that will be given to us in the life to come. However, there is a reward from God that we don’t need to wait until the next life to receive, and that is the gift of children. I will forever be grateful for parents who took this verse seriously and decided to receive as many rewards as God would bless them with.
This reward of children can also apply to spiritual children as well. With this being the exact middle verse in the Psalms of ascent as a whole you could say that at the heart of this ascending journey is the importance of discipling the “children” we are given. As you invest your life into others by mentoring and discipling them you will experience the thrill of raising up the next generation who will continue to carry the torch.
While not mentioned once in the first half of the Psalms of Ascent, children are given special attention in the latter half. Here are some examples:
Psalm 128:3 “Your children like olive plants all around your table. Yes, may you see your children’s children.”
Psalm 132:12 “If your sons will keep My covenant and My testimony which I shall teach them, their sons also shall sit upon your throne forevermore.”
In the latter half of our own journey we are able to invest more into the generations to come.
Keep going up and while you're at it grab the hand of someone who is "young in the faith" and help them climb as well!

We have now come to the middle psalm in this series. It is in the middle of our journey with God that we need this psalms reminders:
1. To build where God is building, or else it is vain; 2. To know the truth—that we are beloved in His eyes; 3. To invest in the next generation.
Be encouraged by these truths that enables us to finish the race strong! He is faithful to complete the work He begins in you!
